Located just 0.8 of a mile from Takoma Metro and with a bus stop around the corner, this 1938 Cottage style home is in a highly convenient transport location. You will fall in love with the charming exterior and more importantly the warm and inviting interior. Built on what was once Hodges Dairy Farm it's a perfect entertainment home for Summer with a covered back porch (this is ready for enclosure to make a sun-filled separate dining room), deck and flagstone patio all overlooking a cascading and private garden! Step into the large living room with wood burning fireplace and wood floors and feel the warmth of this welcoming home. The remodeled stainless, granite kitchen with lots of storage, movable center island and breakfast nook and wood floors makes a great command center for living. Two good sized bedrooms and an oversized bathroom make one level living an easy enjoyment. Pull down steps in the hallway lead to an enormous attic with super high ceilings that is a great future opportunity to expand this home (see the house to the right that has done this). There is LOTS of storage in this attic that is almost entirely floored to accommodate weighty objects. The Lower Level has a Recreation Room with a rear exit and when combined with a large utility and storage room behind that, is an area that is ripe for further expansion. The RR has a closet and outside entrance so could easily be used as a 3rd bedroom. A 2nd bathroom can easily be added here where the main sewer stack descends. The basement was professionally waterproofed in 2014. With two-year-old Central Air Conditioning, economical gas radiator heating (great for allergy sufferers), and a 2014 roof, you are ensured comfortable living. Stepping onto the covered rear porch, you overlook a wonderful planted garden with water feature and fenced privacy. The porch would be a great place to enclose for year round enjoyment! There's a deck below it and a flagstone patio - all ideal for outdoor gatherings and parties! Stroll to the City Library around the corner, or the Town Hall, where concerts, meetings special events take place! Walk to the Cooperative and downtown area restaurants! Enjoy July 4th Fireworks at the nearby Middle School grounds as well as the annual Folk Festival! Wholefoods is a 7-minute drive away and the Elementary and Middle schools are an easy stroll away, as is the 17 Acre Takoma & Piney Branch Park with sports courts, and playing fields, a skate park, and playgrounds! Come home to your warm and inviting Cottage in the City - it will steal your heart!
